HC Deb 06 November 1987 vol 121 c910W
Mr. Cran

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the amount of derelict land in Humberside for the years 1983–84, 1984–85, 1985–86 and 1986–87; and whether this is based on up-to-date information in each case.

Mr. Trippier

This information is not available for the years requested. The last survey of derelict land in England, carried out in 1982, showed that there were then 886 hectares of derelict land in Humberside, of which 632 hectares were thought to justify reclamation. A further survey of derelict land in England will take place in 1988.
